So the other day, after reading the article about the 300% increase in search activity for Sanjaya and Shyamali Malakar, I decided to post about it, here, to try to give some boost/exposure to my tiny blog in the huge internet world and to see if linking does help in getting some extra traffic. Here are the results, not great, but for my blog, worth mentioning :))
So, the graph of the no. of people (unique) visting the main blog page a week before I posted the post looked like this (FYI: the y-axis is 0 to 25):
And the graph after the post is like this (FYI: the y-axis is 0 to 125):
For that particular day (Sunday, April 15), there is indeed a steep increase in the no. of visitors and 99.9% came through searching for either Sanjaya Malakar or his sister.
52% came from searching on technorati.com/tag/Shyamali Malakar
54% visited only trivial-space.blogspot.com/2007/04/experiment-sanjaya-malakar.html page
Latest News: Sanjaya Malakar has been finally voted off the show. Americans are RELIEVED now :)), I think there was just too much talk about it and over-exposure & I just used that to get some exposure to my blog also. Until next time.
